Sally Foundation offers grants for youth initiatives in Orange
FRRR is pleased to be partnering with The Sally Foundation to enable the second round of the Sally Foundation Small Grants (Orange) Program through FRRR's Philanthropic Services. This place-based grant program will support youth related initiatives in or within 50 km of Orange, NSW. Grants will open on 31 July, 2017.
The Sally Foundation's founders, Geraldine and Mike Roche, are trying to be a catalyst in the Orange region. They believe strongly in, and are supporters of, the Canobolas Big Picture Academy Program and its ability to support young people. The recipients of the inaugural grants round held last year were indicative of the inspiration and aspiration for the Sally Foundation's work in Orange.
